What Was Announced At The Samsung Galaxy Unpacked Event 2024?

On 17th January 2024, Samsung held their annual galaxy event, where they dive into the exciting new releases coming out in the upcoming year. As expected, the star of the show was the debut of the s24 phone, the new Samsung phone 2024 coming to the Samsung Galaxy phone S Series. However, there was another reveal that took many Samsung fans by surprise. So let’s take a closer look at everything that was revealed at the Galaxy Unpacked 2024 Event, updating you on what you missed and what is to come over the next 12 months.

(The Samsung Galaxy Unpacked 2024 Event was held in person in San Jose, California and streamed on Samsungs official YouTube channel.)



So like we mentioned, the star of the show was certainly the announcement of the Galaxy S24 series which we will get into the mobile specs of now.

What is the new Samsung phone 2024?

It was no surprise that the Galaxy S24 was announced at the Galaxy Unpacked Event. This smartphone will have a heavy involvement with generative AI after it took the world by storm at the end of 2022 with the introduction of ChatGPT.

Samsung announced they are working on adapting their Galaxy AI, with a combination of on-device and cloud-based AI features which will be available on the S24 in some new features similar to live translation, expanding photos and tone in the text. Besides the introduction of Galaxy AI into their smartphones, the only other major difference was that the smartphone's screens will be 0.1” bigger in size compared to the previous models.

Of course, there will be a Galaxy S24 Ultra released eventually, which will be more premium trading its aluminium frame for a titanium body similar to the iPhone 15 Pro and swapping a 10MP camera for a 50MP camera.

(The new Samsung phone 2024 release date is currently available for pre-order on the official Samsung website, with the official release date of the phone being January 31st.)

What is the Samsung Galaxy Ring?

At the end of the event, Samsung revealed another piece of tech which wasn’t expected by anyone. Further improvements will be made to Samsung Health with the arrival of the Galaxy Ring. Though we know little about this at the moment, it is believed to be a new piece of tech that will measure your health through your day-to-day life. We like how Samsung has created new ways to incorporate tech into our everyday lives, moving away from smartwatches and focusing more on rings and other accessories.

The Galaxy Ring has no current release date, but we will make sure to provide regular updates on this tech when it’s revealed.
